Everyone’s been curious to know in what context Steve Nicks will be introduced on American Horror Story: Coven. She already plays a big part in Misty Day’s everyday life as the hippie witch’s heroine. Ryan Murphy divulged details to Entertainment Weekly about what Nicks will do on the FX program.
“She appears as herself,” he said. “It’s part of Fiona’s ruse in that Fiona is trying to get the true Supreme to reveal herself because she needs to stay alive. So she tells Misty Day that the Supreme gets so many great things in life, like tickets to the Oscars and Met Ball tickets. So she brings Stevie Nicks in as a gift to Misty to prove to her that if she exhibits more power she’ll get that and more. Then the other girls come home and see Stevie and Misty singing and it starts them trying to move much quicker to prove that they are the Supreme.”
As exciting as that is, we won’t get to see Stevie and Misty until after winter break on Episode 10.
“I had a really good conversation with her and explained to her what the show was and it’s gotten such a big reaction from people. She said, ‘Oh I wish I could be on the show.’ But she couldn’t because she was traveling with Fleetwood Mac in Europe but then [bassist] John McVie got cancer so they cancelled those dates,” explained Murphy. “Then she called and said, ‘I’m now available sadly enough. If you wanna use me.’ So I said, ‘Let’s do it!’ So she’s flying in for like two days and doing her scenes. I know every person in the show is like, ‘I better be in that goddamn scene!’ It’s funny.”
